There is a saying: “You wouldn’t build a car in the woods, so why would you build a house outside."
Stick-built homes get mired down with uncontrolled factors such as weather that can drive up costs and throw off schedules.
The construction of modular homes can provide home buyers with considerable cost and time savings, and a superior home. Today, with heating and cooling prices on the rise, modular homes are more popular than ever.
Modular homes can be 65% percent more efficient than an average new construction home.
Another draw for clients is there are fewer on-site construction days, which can get families into their new homes faster. Families do not need to be displaced from school, church and neighbors for long periods, which is certainly the case with stick-built homes.
When the modular home arrives on-site, it is 80% complete.
An entire modular home construction project, from the design phase to completion will take an average of about six months, but that depends on the length of the design phase. Once construction of the modular begins in the factory, a modular home can be completed and ready to move into in a month or two.
Another reason modular homes are becoming increasingly more popular is the construction cost savings. On average, modular homes are 15% more affordable than a traditional new construction, depending on the added amenities an design details. When comparing costs, buyers need to be sure they are comparing apples to apples. But, there is always a time savings and time is money when building a new home.
The construction of a modular home is quicker and it’s better built. The outside walls are thicker, there is better insulation, and it’s more efficient to heat and cool.
Homeowners can choose between Estate Homes, Ranches, Capes and vacation homes. And modular houses are more customizable than ever before which is another reason more and more people are choosing modular homes.
